Our toddler program provides a loving environment which is carefully prepared to meet the unique needs of children
between the ages of 18 months to 2.5 years of age. Our classroom accommodates 15 students and has a 1:5 teacher-student ratio.
The program is a natural extension from home and allows for each child to reach his or her full potential. The nurturing
and secure environment fosters independence, language, and creativity.
The Practical Life area is designed to fit the toddler's hand. It invites hand-eye coordination and assists with
fine motor skills. It also helps promote independence and concentration.
In the Sensorial area children will learn about dimensions, shapes and colours, tactile and auditory senses
through attractive and age-appropriate material.
The Language material encourages conversation, builds vocabulary and provides sense of the world around them. Music
and circle time are also important to language development.
The Math area introduces number recognition through various materials. Number blocks, puzzles, sorting and counting are
all concepts taught in this area.
The gross motor area is specifically designed to allow children to explore and develop coordination and balance.
The child-sized gym, a sand and water table, balancing beams, balls and other motor equipment are all important to
developing their large motor skills.
Social interaction, language skills, independence, music, art and movement activities are all integral
components of the Montessori Toddler experience.
